LibriVox recording of Library of the World's Best Mystery and Detective Stories, volume 2, by Julian Hawthorne, editor.

In the six volumes of the Library of the World's Best Mystery and Detective Stories, Julian Hawthorne presents us thrilling and mysterious short stories from all corners of the world. Some of the stories appeared in this collection for the first time translated into English, and many of them come from unexpected sources, such as the letters of Pliny the Younger, or a Tibetan manuscript. In the second volume, we find stories written by English and Scotch authors. (Summary by Leni)

Subject: Much better than volume 1!
Volume 2 of this six-volume series focuses on English and Scottish authors, so there are some of the best names in mystery and detective fiction included here. Arthur Conan Doyle, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Wilkie Collins are a few of the authors included in this volume. There are some eerie and/or strange stories from Rudyard Kipling as well. The editor did a MUCH better job with story and author selection for volume 2 than for volume 1, although if you're a Sherlock Holmes fan, you've definitely read these stories before.

Subject: A Fowl in Every Pot
The title is a little funny considering modern political history and the phrase " A Chicken in Every Pot". Yet it is but a trifle and almost unrelated to the meat of the story (forgive the pun). Yet it DOES bring to mind a ruler relating to his subjects, which IS important!

This well-told tale has intrigue, plots to murder the King and his minister, but begins when the minister realizes two brothers have colluded to force the minister, when he goes on his routine rounds to get his horse shod at the smithie of one of the brothers. This brother is agreeable and he is vastly overpaid because he tells the minister how "the people" feel about his new laws.

Stunned at their collusion and abuse, the minister chooses to punish them by forcing each one to nail horses shoes on the other's heels. (Those at the dinner party find this funny, I thought it cruel and gross). Finally, the minister tells them he will pardon then if they can tell a JOKE.

And thus begins the crazy, confusing but hilarious tale of the taking down a few pegs the powerful in the King's court!
